Network automation project - Sridhar Rao , Jie Niu - 30 min

  • The idea come up in the CIRV meeting – presentation by Jie Niuon the network configuration automation tool project.  Based on work that is being done by China Telecom and previously by OPNFV
  • In a real world cloud deployment the following steps are required
    • HW integration
    • Network configuration
      • Configuration of network devices based on network planning
    • Cloud deployment
    • App deployment
  • So what is in the network configuration spec
    • Topology requirements
    • aggregation switch configuration
    • TOR configuration
    • VRF-s ... (rest is on the slides)
  • Tools – Recommending using Ansible for the scripting – Can it be some other tool?  How can the text template be more generic to support other tools?  Is that even possible?
    • Ansible have a network module what can support lots of network devices
  • Participants
    • There are already 2 persons from CMCC who are willing to work on the project
    • Sridhar might be also interested
    • Would suggest seeing if another Telecom is interested contributing to this project.
  • Questions
    • Is Ansible a design decision of the tool or the tool can produce an abstract output what can be translated to different automation frameworks, like Ansible, Puppet or whatever
